OID for Two-Key Triple-DES

1999-09-10 07:55:54
Has any standards group defined an OID for two-key triple DES in CBC, i.e., 
EDE where the first and third keys are identical?

The CMC specification states that the same OID should be used as is used
for triple-DES, but that isn't workable in our environment because of the more 
favorable treatment allowed two-key DES when used for key management.

If no standards group has published an OID, are there any common-used
vendor (defacto) standards for the same?

If no one has one, I guess we'll have to define one unilaterally, and map it
when and if a standard one emerges.  But I'd rather not.

due in part, but not exclusively, to the fact that the security of my

such purposes at present.
